Feel better soon

A masculine get well card was what I needed. And I'm still wanting to make fall cards. And I hadn't had a chance to ink up my new PTI Autumn Abundance set. And I have this new SU! Autumn Traditions paper that hadn't been cut into. Need I say more?

I stamped the image on Ivory Pure Luxury 80lb paper with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. I love ALL of the images in this set--they just scream FALL! Then I cut/embossed it with a square Nestabilities die and matted it on more. I didn't want to use ribbon on this card but I think this rick rack works. What do you think--is rick rack OK for a masculine card? Then I added a big ole button from PTI's Vintage Buttons in Pure Poppy tied on with PTI rustic twine and added some punched out oak leaves and the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!
